I salute the Arms Control Association … for its keen vision of the goals ahead and for its many efforts to identify and to promote practical measures that are so vitally needed to achieve them. -

The Arms Transfers Working Group (ATWG) is an alliance of arms control, development, human rights and academic organizations and affiliated individuals. ATWG serves as an information clearinghouse, forum and point of contact for strengthening efforts to address the economic, humanitarian and security implications of legal, illicit, and illegal arms transfers. ATWG participants focus on a wide range of concerns related to small arms and light weapons, major conventional weapons systems, and relevant dual-use technologies.

The Arms Trade News is a regular compilation of reports and media sources looking at the international arms trade and related issues including the Arms Trade Treaty, export control reform, and efforts to control landmines and cluster munitions.
